Trayvon Zimmerman

See on Scoop.itCommunity Village Daily

“George Zimmerman ruined not only the Martins’ lives, but his own. He may not be in jail now, but he will surely be imprisoned for the rest of his life. And it is not because he is “evil” or “racist” (he may or may not be those things, I don’t know), but because his choices that night were constrained by a corrupt and violent culture that severely limited his “choices.” -Brett Russell Coleman

Profoundly Moved: Candice’s Artistic Journey: Discovering the Sari

See on Scoop.itMixed American Life

“At the show people told me that I looked like a piece of art work and that the cloth I wore was the most beautiful they had ever seen. In fact, I was hugged more there by people than I had been in years. It was as if they were thanking me for wearing a sari. For three days I was lucky enough to don a sari, but on the last day, I wore Western clothes and what a world of difference that made! Conversations that had been respectful, enlightening and even surreal, degraded to school-boy banter about breasts. People even evinced surprise that I was a sculptor; I was no longer the worthy creator of my own work! I felt naked. I felt dethroned.” -Candice Raquel Lee

“I once asked her why we never learned to speak spanish. It was with saddened eyes, head down, when she told me “It was because I was spanked in school for not knowing how to speak English.” Spanked as in literally spanked on the hand with rulers for not speaking English as a 5 year old.”

My Experience on the Indian-Negro Color Line

Via Scoop.itMixed American Life

“Classroom discussions about race motivated me, at the age of 46, to reclaim my Indian ancestry by having my birth certificate changed from “Negro” to “American Indian.” The experience was emotionally overwhelming as I had been denied my birthright as an E. Pequot-Nottoway. Changing my birth certificate was not because I was ashamed of my multiracial identity; it was an affirmation of my survival as an Indian and an act of self-determination in a country that has gone so far to erase my ancestry from history.”
